  • Gaming year 2008

    So, how was the year? Pretty wild, if you ask me. (See Gaming Year 2007.) Good new games (2007-2008 games) Dominion — Well, I played 28 games of this, and most of them outside BrettSpielWelt. That’s a pretty nice number, considering how late this game arrived. Everybody likes it, or at least doesn’t mind playing […]

  • Gaming year 2007

    Another year of games is soon over. Gaming year 2006 was good, but I think this one was even better! At least in quality, not necessarily in quantity… Good new games (2006-2007 games) Agricola — This year brought two very good games, worthy of top-10 or even top-5 spot on my personal ratings. Agricola is […]

  • Hot games for Q3/2007

    It has been a good quarter. With the new Thursday sessions I’ve had time to play more games, which is always good. I even made it to the Board Game Club. Previous quarter was a good one, too. Fairy Tale is definitely the hottest game, with 13 games played and thoroughly enjoyed. It’s certainly my […]

  • Fairies, Phoenicians and Real Estate Agents

    Today was a day for games. I’ve been meeting folks at the University cafe recently and it’s been a good place: quiet (summer and all), food and drink service with no pressure to buy anything, decent tables, good light, easy to find — very good, very good. Today’s company included both Ollis and couple of […]

  • Phoenicia and Fairy Tale

    Another game of Phoenicia, this time with five players and just one newbie. It was a roaring success: most people got it and enjoyed it. It only took us 70 minutes, too, and that with no particular rushing and pushing. It was a good, close match. I was almost there, fighting for the victory with […]

  • Leonardo da Vinci and Phoenicia

    I met the boys at the university for games. First up was my second go at Leonardo da Vinci. This one solified my opinion and dropped my rating to six. I can see it’s a good game and I would recommend it to people who like resource optimization games, but I don’t like it myself. […]

  • Hot games for Q2/2007

    After a very slow quarter, I’m back with a bit more action. Phoenicia rules the list, after five online games. It’s good, and I’ll buy it as soon as it appears in Finland. Caylus Magna Carta — forget the board game, the card game has all the Caylus you’ll need and it’s packed in a […]

  • More Phoenicia

    Three more rounds of two-player Phoenicia. Two were quite exciting: first one went to tiebreaker, second one I eventually won as Tommy continued to struggle with economical restraints. Storage is good thing to have. The third game was a slaughter; unfortunately I was in the receiving end. It’s fun, but the small number of cards […]

  • Phoenicia at JKLM Interactive

    I played a game of Phoenicia at JKLM Interactive. It’s a neat idea: they’re offering a online game until the game is published. I’m not sure they’re going to have lots of players when the game is published and playing is £5 a year, but for now it’s a nice way to test the game. […]

  • Tom Lehmann

    Before, Tom Lehmann simply didn’t register on my radar. I’m too young or something for the TimJim Games and Fast Food Franchise to mean anything to me. However, now I take a look at my list of three most-anticipated games — Caylus Magna Carta, Race for the Galaxy and Phoenicia — and hey, two out […]
